While wishing a happy new year around me, people helped me realised how many good things happened to me this year. Funny enough, while listing my goals for 2019, I found the matching list for 2018 and here is what really happened.
It has been a while since I wanted to create something helpful to others, not than just another random app. Then I found out there were not so many great sobriety apps, so I launched one. Here is Appy, to help you quit your bad habits.
With iOS13, Apple is introducing “Sign In with Apple”, an authentication system that allows user create an account for your app based on their Apple ID. Let’s see how to integrate it in your app and be ready for iOS13 launch.
I have been a bit more quite for the past couple weeks to take a break of my weekly routine of blogging. It’s not because I was lazy, but I wanted to take time to digest WWDC. At the same time I had other running projects, one was my first talk at an iOS meetup. Here is couple tips I would have love to hear earlier.
One debate over the past year in the iOS ecosystem was the around functional reactive framework like RxSwift or ReactiveCocoa. This year at WWDC2019, Apple took position on it and released their own functional reactive programming framework, here is Combine.
I have been recently asked to review an iOS application to see how healthy was the code base, if it follows the best practices and how easy it would be to add new features to it. If I review some code on daily basis for small pull requests, analysing one whole app at once is quite different exercice. Here is some guidelines to help doing that analysis.
After weeks experimenting different patterns and code structures, I wanted to go further in functional reactive programming and see how to take advantage of it while following Coordinator pattern. This post describes how integrate RxSwift with Coordinator pattern and which mistakes to avoid.
We often talk about scalability of iOS app but not much about the project itself or the team. How to prepare your project to move from 2 developers to 6? How about 10 or 20 more? In that research, I’ve listed different tools to prepare your team and project to scale.
For the past months, I keep going further in RxSwift usage. I really like the idea of forwarding events through different layers but the user interface stays sometimes a challenge. Today, I’ll describe how to use RxDataSources to keep things as easy as possible.
Even if I usually stay focus on the customer facing side of mobile development, I like the idea of writing backend api with all the security that Swift includes. Starting small, why not using Swift Server for our UI Tests to mock content and be at the closest of the real app.
